A little consistency in some areas was what Farmington sought in its regular-season finale at Rosemount. The Tigers more or less got that, and a win, to boot as they try to build momentum toward another state tournament run.
Farmington was a little short handed, but earned its first shutout win of the season, a 3-0 South Suburban Conference victory against Rosemount on Saturday. With the playoffs now just a few days away, it was a nice final bit of preparation for the Tigers.
“Knowing that we’ve got players who are committed and ready to go for playoffs, who are young, but they have experience,” said Farmington coach Jon Holmes. “Only two seniors on the team is tough, but in terms of them having experience from last year, all of them do. So they know what it’s like. We know what it takes to get back.”

A late first-period goal held up for Farmington as it defeated South Suburban Conference foe Rosemount 3-0 on the road Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams.
Sam Moehle had two goals, as the Tigers (15-10-0, 11-7-0) earned their first shutout win of the season.
Makenna Kadrlik tipped in a shot from the point by Madison Kadrlik for a 1-0 Farmington lead 10 minutes, 4 seconds into the first period. Sam Moehle pounced on a loose puck in the slot and scored at 13:43 of the second to put the Tigers up 2-0. She added an empty-net goal in the third.
Rosemount (10-15-0, 7-11-0) was shut out for just the third time this season.
Irish goaltender Bridget Heffron made 21 saves on 23 shots. Farmington’s Ryleigh Furlong stopped all 17 shots she saw for her first shutout of the season.
